From Morning Report, 8:18 am on 17 October 2022

"It's too late to leave".

Residents who've chosen to stay in some of the hardest-hit areas in Victoria's flooding crisis are now being told to head to higher ground.

Almost 70 emergency warnings are in place across the state, with some rivers in the north nearing a possible peak of 95 metres. Authorities warn this could end up being one of the largest evacuations in the state's history.

The ABC's Nicole Asher spoke to Corin Dann from Shepparton in northern Victoria.
